Tips on Making Cheesy Shrimp Casserole

Wondering what to make with shrimp and macaroni from your pantry? This baked shrimp casserole recipe uses only several ingredients that will have your dinner ready instantly. With just 15 minutes of prep time, this shrimp casserole is a delicious and life-saving dinner recipe! Read on to get some simple tips.

  • You can use fresh or frozen shrimp for this recipe. If your shrimp is frozen, don’t forget to thaw them first. If they’re fresh shrimp however, you’ll have to clean them before boiling. This means cutting off their heads and legs, then deshelling and deveining them.
  • We used the basic ingredients of an alfredo sauce for this creamy shrimp casserole. While not required for this recipe, using cream of mushroom soup as a base makes a thicker casserole with an enhanced flavor of mushrooms.
  • If you prefer a healthier starch, you can replace the elbow macaroni with any type of rice. Wild rice and brown rice are healthy alternatives to make a shrimp and rice casserole.
  • Use the shrimp heads you cleaned to add more flavor. They’ll need to be blanched for 1 minute. Then, simply toss them in a food processor to get the juices. If you don’t have this appliance, a mortar and pestle will work just fine.
